Khinalyg is an ancient Caucasian village going back to the Caucasian Albanian period. It is located high up in the mountains of Quba Rayon, Azerbaijan. We are going to visit this place right now.
Locals say that here they sell the cheapest and the tastiest shashlik (barbecue).
The road is good, it has recently been built.
The road goes through the mountains and gorges, through riverbeds.
Khanalig is not far from here. 30 km from the village is Dagestan.
Locals are celebrating someone’s wedding.
This man is the main welder in the village.
Water supply system in the village is rather unusual. A well is made in the nearest mountains and is located higher than the settlement itself, it only remains to make plumbing and the water will flow down in the necessary direction and create necessary pressure.
The food locals eat is rather plain: bread, cheese, tomatoes, onions. But tea always goes first, three cups of it. They do not eat meat every day, because they simply have no place to store it. One family cannot eat the whole sheep in one day. They do not eat soup either. The main food is bread which they bake themselves. It is tasty with sweet tea, milk, cheese, vegetables.
Alomost all locals have come to the wedding. All the celebration goes without the bride. Only in the very end the bridegroom goes by car to her place and takes her to his place. Such a tradition.
